I am a Licensed Master Social Worker and I have been providing therapeutic services for several years in many different settings, including the corrections systems, child/adolescent residential homes, inpatient hospital for adults and children, community mental health and outpatient services. I have a passion for working with people from all walks of life, and love the diversity of the clientele I am able to reach with telehealth. What makes social work so stimulating and challenging is every individual is unique. Each story is compelling, presenting opportunities to learn and grow. In terms of therapeutic technique and strategy, one size will never fit all. A social worker must remain in the moment to capitalize on the strengths of each client. Micro level social work is often a journey of self-exploration by the client, meant to increase their level of self-understanding and self-awareness. Social workers merely act as the guide on this captivating journey. On some level of consciousness based on client’s experience in life, I believe the client is in possession of the answers to their questions. My role will be to make those answers explicit, helping clients identify, develop, and mobilize their own resources to successfully solve problems and meet challenges. This client-centered philosophy allows me to help individual in a way I have always dreamed of. I view social work as an extension of human life and know I am blessed to work in a field that makes a difference in the lives of individuals. When my fellow human beings may doubt the likelihood of change, it will only spark my passion to try harder and make the impossible, possible.
